    I really truly believe her cause my keys were taken away, they took my car and proceeded to Hide it from me, to do so it was no where on the lot when I looked to for it and they would not give my keys back. I told them, I was there only to LOOK. They had me there all day and would not let me go till I bought a car that I did not want nor did not want to listen to me. They shoved me a car that was 100.00 over my budget put me upside down in it and I still struggle today. I have called Nissan Corporate, I have written letters and Still no response. I am sick and tired of this dealer taken advantage of people especially being sexiest against women and bullying them. I want something done!!! My next step will be TEN ON YOUR SIDE!!!
